Product Description
English can be a very tricky language for students to learn, especially with so many words that sound alike but have different meanings. Adults even struggle to give names to the different types of multiple meaning words, so there is a handy flow chart included for the categorization used in my sets. This grouping is for homonyms (a form of homophones/homographs) which are words that have different meanings, but are spelled the same and sound the same. For example: ship (boat) and ship (send a package).

These matching games give students the chance to learn about words that have more than one meaning. I suggest playing through the game once with an adult (great activity for parent volunteers) before using them in a center for students to continue practicing. Just like many traditional matching games, students take turns turning over two cards at a time to see if they match. The cards include pictures and sentences to help explain the different meanings. (Some cards have a small 3 in the lower right hand corner. If students match two of these cards, for example issue (give)/issue (problem)/issue (edition), they can turn over one more card on that turn looking for the third partner card.) One teaching tip: I found that many of my students needed to be taught to pay attention to the cards that other players were turning over, rather than only looking for matches on their own turn.

The Homonyms Matching Games sets 6-11 contains sets of 32 playing cards (words in groups of 2 or 3):
6 Long Vowels (a)
7 Long Vowels (e)
8 Long Vowels (i)
9 Long Vowels (o)
10-11 Mixed Long Vowels
